    About Us

    The UNC School of Information and Library Science (SILS) is a bustling hub of research, innovation and learning, as well as a supportive and collegial community that keeps people feeling connected long after they’ve left Carolina.

    Information is our focus and our passion, and we approach its study from a variety of perspectives with the goal of developing theories, practices and systems that can lead the world to higher levels of prosperity, equity and understanding.
